Eastern Illinois (-15.5) vs. SEMO
***SEMO's top player, Calvin Williams, has been dismissed from the basketball team "because of a violation of athletic department policy. University personnel will have no further comment."***

Williams was SEMO's best player by far. This leaves SEMO with 7 scholarship players and one of them has a fractured foot and a broken nose. EIU won the last two meeting by 20 points, both at SEMO. I'm all on this game like a Snuggie. (8 units)

Gonzaga (-5) vs. Memphis
College Gameday in Spokane. Memphis traveling cross country. Gonzaga is the better team. I've never liked Memphis. Well, Memphis basketball. The barbeque is phenominal. (2 units)

Tennessee (-3) at Auburn
The Vols can't afford to lose this one. They're still the best team in the SEC and they're starting to play like it. I just don't see Auburn keeping this one close. But, I also didn't see that the girl from The Vu last night was a tranny... until we got home. (2 units)

Miami FL (+14) at Duke
Miami is getting Duke at a good time here. I think it will be tough for the Blue Devils to respond with a 15 point win after that massacre at Clemson. Plus, Miami's guards are very physical while Scheyer, Paulus and the rest of the Dukies look like choir boys straight out of Neverland Ranch. McClinton always seems to shoot well in big games and they should keep this one close. Duke wins but not by double digits. (3 units)

Cincinnati (+10.5) at Georgetown
Georgetown has not impressed me all year. This line seems high considering Cincinnati is capable of scoring on anyone. They had a bad offensive performance in an ugly loss to Nova but other than that, they are on a roll. Oh, and not to mention that they won by 8 earlier this season against the Hoyas. Go (Bear)Cats. (4 units)
